The silent observer.

One of those times it will happen.

The clock will strike and you will be able to leave.

The clock will strike and you will be able to leave. But not today.

The clock will strike and you will be able to leave. But not today. Today feels like any other.

Hallow, as you stare at the moving passengers.

You are not one of them.

You are not one of them. You stay still.

Always looking at them, wondering what kind of a life they lead.

You know their stories. Why they do what they do.

How they live behind closed doors. What kind of things occupy their thoughts.

You hear the whispers of lies, the shouts of hate and threats, the cut of words, the shattering of a broken heart.

You see the washed away tears, the bruises left behind by their loved once and the scars they inflicted on themselves.

You notice everything.

You notice everything. While they do not notice you.

And you are always there,

And you are always there, seeing everything.

You see the good in the hearts of those who are not.

You see things and you understand them.

But life, as it is, continues to baffle you.

Yet after everything you have seen, you are not changed.

Because things should not reach you.

Your existence is not dependant on theirs.

But you cannot help but feel.

If you could,

If you could, you would reach out.

And despite your attempts,

And despite your attempts, you cannot move.

You are cold as ice,

You are cold as ice, unmoving as stone.

Always the observer

Always the observer never the observed.

So you cry silent tears made of oxygen

So you cry silent tears made of oxygen as pain creates crakes on your stone skin.

And you cannot run away.

And as much as you try to focus on the wonders of this broken life...

... you cannot unsee the pain that is blooming dead flowers all around you.

You know the truth.

You notice everything.

And all you can do

And all you can do is wait for that acid rain

And all you can do is wait for that acid rain to melt your broken limbs.
